    • Code Generation - Adding properties

      What is the best way to add a new property to a business object? Currently I am using CSLAGenFork to generate business objects (.Library, .Dal, .DalSQL, and StoredProc). If each business object is modified with custom logic, calculations, new methods etc, It seems quite difficult to add a single property...

    • Modeling behavior and ORM code generation

      I've been reading all the CSLA books and modeling behavior (while still hard for me to change my thinking) seems like a great way to solve a bunch of problems. But if, as Rocky put it, the likelihood that the relational model looks like the object model is very small, then how is it possible to build...

    • Re: What does Rocky use for code generation?

      I didn't pursue that option. There are some really good code generators out there, several of which include templates for (or directly target) CSLA .NET. I'd much rather foster a code generation ecosystem around CSLA than attempt to become a competitor to those generators. I think that's...

    • Re: Partial Success with Code Generators.

      Hi Rene, Some notes: If your CodeGen tool is a payed product, I would try to speak to the maintenance people. Are there templates you can edit to fit your needs? This link Code generation is a good idea discusses the generation/re-generation issue. As you can conclude from the link, CslaGenFork tries...

    • Is there anyone out there that can provide some guidance on DataMapper Best Practices

      As a part of some "architectural studies" for an up-coming project, I have been looking at the DataMapper class. We are looking at using data transfer objects (DTO) to communicate with the database and probably MVVM objects to communicate with WPF. One of the downsides with each of these is...

    • Your opinion about Code Generators.

      Dear All, I am have been using CSLA for some time without code generators. I decided to start using a Code Genetator, and I am considering using Free/Open source. I did some search, and I found CSLAGenerator and CodeComplete. I downloaded CSLAGenerator and started playing arround with this tool. After...

    • Re: The state of CSLA code generation c. March 2010

      Hi Phillip: For what its worth, here is what I would look for in CSLA code generation: 1. Provide a visual modelling surface (similar to the Entity Data Modeller in VS) which can be used to create"behaviour first" models and generate CSLA classes and SQL for a prototypical physical data store...

      My name is Philip and I am the architect behind Code Complete. I just would like to contribute to what I believe is an interesting debate about Code Generation. As you might have guessed, I am a big a fan of Code Generation. I started experimenting with Code Generation about 15 years ago, generating...

    • Re: The state of CSLA code generation c. March 2010

      I also went the same road of trying several solutions without much success and ended up writing my own T4 templates. The templates create two partial classes one of which is refreshed when the database changes and the other is where I put all the custom code. I had to go through a few iterations before...

      Dan, I'm a code generation advocate for a range of reasons as well. I suspect its my version of a "do my job" button. I'm going to say that your not going to find a code generation interface that does everything at this point in time. There are a lot of good products on offer but I've...

    • Re: The state of CSLA code generation c. March 2010

      I tend to agree with your analysis. I for instance want to make the jump to Entity Framework for my DAL and there is no option for that in CodeSmith. I also wish any code generator had the option to incrementally add Classes, even with partial classes the generation tends to be an all or nothing proposition...

    • Re: The state of CSLA code generation c. March 2010

      I am not sure that I can save you hours - but I can tell my recent experience. First, let me qualify my comments: I am sure that there are many developers who find the use of the generation tools which I have looked at to be of immense value. In my case though, I have found their use has brought me less...

    • The state of CSLA code generation c. March 2010

      I'd like to see if somebody can answer this and save me many hours of evaluating products. Let me first say that I've never really been completely convinced of the value of code generation for the way I think it should work. Namely, they all seem to be more ORM tools rather than behavior-driven...
